Welcome to the first episode of the Sacred Honor Series!
To begin this new series, we learn about how this signer went from wealthy businessman to the presiding officer during the adoption and signing of the Declaration of Independence.
The Sacred Honor Series will cover each of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence and how their life experiences relate to the six pillars of Washington's Farewell Address and contemporary times. Packed with exciting stories and fun facts, episodes are released every four weeks and released in the order which the signers actually signed the Declaration. SUBSCRIBE today and hop onboard this new, exciting chapter of the Friends & Fellow Citizens podcast!
